A septic air pump is a necessary element in the health and maintenance of an aerobic septic system and should be replaced or repaired immediately if damaged or malfunctioning. The bacteria within your system require a certain amount of oxygen in order to complete their function; namely to digest, settle, and break down waste from your home or business in order to be properly collected and disposed of. The process of breaking down septic waste in an aerobic system can be around 20x faster than the process of breaking down septic waste in an anaerobic septic system. If the bacteria in the system are not supplied with proper levels of oxygen by a working and well maintained septic air pump, the system can begin to malfunction, corrode, or otherwise wear down. Signs of an improperly aerated or otherwise malfunctioning septic system include:
- Foul smell or discharge coming from the system itself
- An overflow of waste from the system
- Increased toxicity or non-clear/unsafe runoff
- Difficulty in removing and disposing of the waste from your septic system
Improper maintenance of your septic system can result in wasted time and high-cost repair expenses which can ruin your day and your budget. Make sure to routinely check your system for signs of malfunction, and perform routine maintenance on your pump in order to ensure proper operation.
